Simple Spinach Salad and Dressing

Fresh salad in the winter is a real treat and here is a hearty favorite in our house.  You can amp up the volume on the bacon, egg or onion to your taste – in my opinion there can never be enough bacon!

Tossed Spinach Salad – Serving Size: 8 (when serving as a side)

  • 1 pound fresh baby spinach, or regular spinach torn in pieces
  • 4 boiled eggs, sliced
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 oz can of peeled, sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1/2 large red onion sliced thin

Dressing:

  • 1 cup salad oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup HUNTS ketchup
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix dressing ingredients well and refrigerate. Combine salad ingredients, saving a few eggs and mushrooms slices to arrange on top. Toss with dressing before serving.
